Program and Design: Originally designed as a data center for a major airline, the long-vacant building was adaptively renovated into a state-of-the-art wine storage facility with accessory offices and retail wine store. A new loading dock was constructed along with new vertical transportation. A sophisticated climate control system was designed to maintain strict temperature and humidity levels optimum for wine storage.

Program and Design: Originally constructed as a World War II munitions factory, two buildings were demolished to their structures and adaptively re-used as a multi-tenant warehouse and manufacturing facility. Site circulation was re-imagined, and 54 loading docks were constructed. To power the historic manufacturing systems, steam boilers fed turbines to generate electricity to power the entire campus. The original 10,000 square foot load-bearing masonry powerhouse no longer served a purpose but was providing structural support and stability to the entire structure. To demolish the powerhouse, new structural steel framing was installed. The building facades were replaced with a combination of split-face concrete masonry units, corrugated metal panels, and translucent fiber panels. A massive, 200-ton, missile nose cone form artifact was salvaged and used as a site sculpture at the entrance to the property.
